Steady growth in the Australian and Asian-Pacific markets prompted Global Ocean Security Technologies Australia to move to a larger facility in North Lakes, Queensland.
The new location for the boat security, monitoring, tracking, surveillance, acoustic deterrent and cloaking systems supplier serves as GOST Australia’s headquarters and houses its corporate administrative, sales and marketing and distribution operations.
"Despite challenging economic conditions, interest in GOST boat security, monitoring, surveillance and tracking products has remained strong,” GOST Australia distributor principal Blake Cooper said in a statement. “We see significant opportunities for our products in the marketplace, and relocating our operations to a larger facility puts us in position to take advantage of these opportunities. It will also give us a great platform to deliver better service to our existing and future customers.”
As a result of the growth, GOST also plans to have “a much larger presence this year” at the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show May 23-26 in Queensland, Cooper said.
“A marine insurance broker will be available on the stand to answer any questions that showgoers may have about insurance needs for their vessel,” Cooper said. “They will have the added advantage of obtaining the latest information on how to protect their vessel, which is, for many, one of their largest assets. With marine crime at an all-time high, now is the time to look at specialized marine alarm and tracking equipment.”
